ArtsQuest’s silver anniversary blends art, music and wine on May 10-12

Published: Friday, May 3, 2013 at 12:12 PM.

Also headlining the evening, singer-songwriter Kellin Watson brings elements of blues, pop, folk, and soul to the stage. Kellin draws on her Appalachian roots to bring both power and rawness to her music. She has released four solo independent albums, and has performed with a wide range of notable artists including, Amos Lee, Little Feat, Susan Tedeschi, The Duhks, Jessica Simpson, Sara Evans, Billy Corgan and The Crash Test Dummies. 

A new addition to the long-standing event is WineQuest, a wine and cheese tasting. Chan's Wine World teamed up with the CAA to feature wine and cheeses from five of the world's top wine-producing regions — Italy, France, Chile, Spain and South Africa. The wine stations will be arranged throughout the festival and guests will have the opportunity to purchase a passport that may be used in a single day or throughout the weekend.

ArtsQuest will take place 4-7 p.m. on Friday, May 10, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday, May 12. Admission is free, but a $5 entry donation is suggested. “Back to Grayton” takes place Friday, May 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Hibiscus and is $10 or free for CAA Members. "Songs on the Lawn" will be held on May 12 at 7 p.m. and tickets are $20 per person for general admission and $300 for a VIP table for 10.  Picnic dinner baskets for 10 may be pre-ordered by calling (850) 231-7768 by May 8.
